Background: Delayed gastric emptying (DGE) is a common complication after pancreatoduodenectomy. The International Study Group of Pancreatic Surgery (ISGPS) definition of DGE has not been evaluated and validated in a high-volume centre. Methods: Complete data sets including assessment of gastric emptying were identified from a database of patients undergoing pancreatoduodenectomy between 2001 and 2008. Factors associated with DGE (grades A, B and C) were assessed by univariable and multivariable analyses. Results: DGE occurred in 340 (44·5 per cent) of 764 patients. Median hospital stay was significantly prolonged in patients with DGE: 13, 21 and 40 days for grades A, B and C respectively versus 11 days for patients without DGE. DGE was associated with prolonged intensive care unit (ICU) admission (at least 2 days): 20·6, 28·6 and 61·8 per cent of those with grades A, B and C respectively versus 9·4 per cent of patients without DGE. Factors independently influencing DGE grade A were female sex, preoperative heart failure and major complications (grade III–V). Validation of the DGE definition revealed that DGE grades A and B were associated with interventional treatment in 20·1 and 44·4 per cent of patients. Conclusion: The ISGPS DGE definition is feasible and applicable in patients with an uneventful postoperative course. Major postoperative complications and ICU treatment, however, might limit its usefulness. The identified risk factors for DGE are not amenable to perioperative improvement.

Abstract Background Pancreatic fistula (PF) is one of the most common postoperative complications of pancreatoduodenectomy (PD). A recent International Study Group on Pancreatic Fistula (ISGPF) definition grades the severity of PF according to the clinical impact on the patient's hospital course. Although PF is generally treated conservatively (grade A), some cases may require interventional procedures (grade B) or may be life-threatening and necessitate emergency reoperation (grade C). The aim ...

Background: The International Study Group on Pancreatic Fistula (ISGPF) classification scheme has become a useful system for characterizing the clinical impact of pancreatic fistula. We sought to identify predictive factors that predispose patients to fistula, specifically those with clinical relevance (grades B/C), and to describe the clinical and economic significance of risk stratification within this framework.

While mortality following pancreaticoduodenectomy has progressively decreased over the last decade, its morbidity, especially the development of pancreatic fistula, has remained constant over the years. However, high volume centers and individual surgeons report a major decrease in the rate of post-operative pancreatic fistulas. Technical refinements are crucial to reduce, and if possible prevent, the development of pancreatic fistula. No uniformity of opinion exists as to the method of pancreat...

Pancreatic cancer remains the fourth leading cause of cancer deaths overall in the United States, killing an estimated 31,800 people in 2005.1 A number of single-institution and single-state reports have described an improvement in perioperative mortality in the 1980s and 1990s for high-risk cancer resections, including pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD).2–4 In the state of Maryland, concurrent with a move toward statewide regionalization of PD, a decrease in perioperative mortality was described over...

Background Postoperative hemorrhage is one of the most severe complications after pancreatic surgery. Due to the lack of an internationally accepted, universal definition of postpancreatectomy hemorrhage (PPH), the incidences reported in the literature vary considerably, even in reports from randomized controlled trials. Because of these variations in the definition of what constitutes a PPH, the incidences of its occurrence are not comparable. Methods The International Study Group of Pancreatic...

Concepts in “fast-track” surgery, which provide optimal perioperative care, have been proven to significantly reduce complication rates and decrease hospital stay. This study explores whether fast-track concepts can also be safely applied and improve the outcomes of major pancreatic resections. Perioperative data from 255 consecutive patients, who underwent pancreatic resection by means of fast-track surgery in a high-volume medical center, were analyzed using univariate and multivariate models....

Importance Although standardization of pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) has improved postoperative outcomes, morbidity remains high. Fast-track surgery programs appear to improve morbidity, and avoiding nasogastric tube decompression (NGTD), already outdated in most major abdominal surgery, is strongly suggested after PD by fast-track surgery programs but lacks high-level evidence, especially regarding safety. Objective To assess in a randomized clinical trial whether the absence of systematic NGTD ...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy (LPD) is gaining interest with several series reporting favourable outcomes. However, there are significant limitations to the successful implementation of LPD programmes in Australian and New Zealand (ANZ) settings. This study presents a local series of consecutive hybrid LPD (HLPD) and a suggested protocol for implementation of an LPD programme in ANZ settings. METHODS: A retrospective review of consecutive patients undergoing HLPD with a laparo...
Hintergrund Die Magenentleerungsstorung (MES) ist die haufigste Komplikation nach partieller Pankreatoduodenektomie. Wahrend eine ante- oder retrokolische Lage keinen Einfluss auf die Haufigkeit einer MES hat, wurde wiederholt postuliert, dass eine infrakolische im Gegensatz zur suprakolischen Duodenoenterostomie durch die gestreckte Position des Magenausgangs vorteilhaft ist. Beide Formen der retrokolischen Rekonstruktion wurden bislang nicht miteinander verglichen. Patienten 138 Patienten wurd...

Background: Pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) is a procedure associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Initially described as gastropancreaticoduodenectomy (GPD), the possibility of preservation of the gastric antrum and pylorus was described in the 1970s.

Importance Technical proficiency at robotic pancreaticoduodenectomy (RPD) and video assessment are promising tools for understanding postoperative outcomes. Delayed gastric emptying (DGE) remains a major driver of cost and morbidity after pancreaticoduodenectomy. Objective To determine if technical variables during RPD are associated with postoperative DGE. Design, Setting, and Participants A retrospective study was conducted of technical assessment performed in all available videos (n = 192) of...

Abstract Background Safety of pancreaticoduodenectomy has improved significantly in the past 3 decades. Current inpatient and 30-d mortality rates are low. However, incidence and causes of 90-d and 1-y mortality are poorly defined and largely unexplored. Methods All patients who had pancreaticoduodenectomy between 2007 and 2016 were included in this single institution, retrospective cohort study. Distributions of pancreaticoduodenectomy-specific morbidity and cause-specific mortality were compar...

Abstract Background A cost analyses of complications following pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) was performed in a high volume hepato-biliary-pancreatic service. We hypothesised that costs are increased with both severity and number of complications; we investigated the relationship between complications and specific cost centres. Methods 100 patients from 2011 to 2016 were included. Data relating to their perioperative course were collected. Complications were documented by the Clavien–Dindo classi...

Abstract Background/Objectives Pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD), also known as a Whipple procedure, is commonly performed for a variety of benign and malignant tumours, including of the pancreatic head and surrounding structures. PD is associated with low mortality but high morbidity and costs. Our objective was to describe the financial burden of complications following pancreaticoduodenectomy. Methods We searched for articles using the MEDLINE, EMBASE, Cochrane and EconLit databases from the year ...
